FAQ: “Can I join the hearing afterwards?”

The hearing starts at 11am – feel free to join us to head over to the hearing room! However, based on our previous experience with a hearing in this space, security may restrict entrance based on space in the room. Coming to the rally at 10am is the best way to show your support!
